This paper introduces a new approach to extend icon-based visualization methods by using a mosaic-based paradigm. We discuss how image metaphors closely related to the application domain can be applied for icon-based representations. Therefore, we enhance visualizations by well-known image mosaic techniques, such as image layouts, image selection and color adaption. Furthermore, we present the results of our approach by discussing an example of a clustered real-world climate data set.
